A whole gener- ation has grown up that doesn’t know it, as it hasn’t been rereleased very often. Long: It was a picture of exceptional visual beauty, and as it happened, it was the first film you

The Context for Shelley’s Critique of the Enlightenment

C^en 4 ENGLAND W H A T I have written about Shillong leads me naturally to speak of another intangible and exotic element in the ecology of our lives.

The greater integration of the market meant that profit increasingly had to come from speculation rather than the more simple method of commercial supply. As a foreign expedition was necessarily expensive and as the expansion of the market meant that the supply of pictures in England was that much greater, international dealers increas- ingly began to act on the domestic market as well, joining shop-dealers in buying at auctions. This tendency developed rapidly from the mid-i740s onwards, producing a market of sufficient complexity for it to include an
